Confessions of a Secret Agent

I have a new-found respect for the life of a secret agent... trying to live a life of normalcy, but behind the scenes there's enough action to fill movie screens. With that being said, did I happen to mention that I have three patterns in the works... no? hmm, that could be because I was stuck behind the computer screen and everything has to stay under wraps until it's time. Sneak peeks are few and far between, and showing too much too soon might give it all away.

It's no secret that I love applique, but what I really love is the combination of traditional piecing combined with applique... who says you can't have it all, right? Right now my flavor of the month are these elongated drunkard's path units. I find them so much more interesting than their simple-curved cousin. My original plan for this project was to go super saturated in my colors, but I found that I needed to reign things in a bit and bring a little balance into things... thus, more grunge!

... and give me a quilt block, and I'll add a circle to it! Such a simple little embellishment can go so far!?! Don't sit there too long with your coffee, or you might get a dot too!

Believe it or not, this quilt top is finished, and already with the long arm quilter... that way it frees me up to get to the dirty work of pattern writing...  rolling up my sleeves and delving back in. I'll try to come up for air soon!


  1. Hi Allison,
    es ist wieder nur klasse, was hier zu sehen ist. Leider reichen meine Kenntnisse und Fähigkeiten noch nicht aus, um auch nur annähernd solche tollen Dinge zu machen.
    Aber diese wunderbaren Bilder motivieren ungemein.
    Liebe Grüße

  2. The colors are gorgeous! Looking forward to seeing the full reveal :) xo

  3. Oh Allison, your quilts are always so intriguing. They have enough going with them, that they are very interesting. Can you tell I'm a big fan of yours? I love applique and traditional block mixed too, so I'll patiently wait for your big reveal.

  4. Allison, what ever it is, I want it.
    As always, your creations are filled with perfection and whimsy. I am excited for your pattern
